Automation solutions for inspection and safety applications
In production, workshop and research environments, electric cylinders are often used for quality checks and measurements of workpieces.
In addition, for electric drives and controllers, the safety functions are important and sometimes legally required.
Control and transfer in the cleanroom
Products are checked during transfer between conveyors and sorted into transport packages. RCP2CR and RCP6CR actuators are used for these cleanroom applications.
Camera inspection of workpieces
The workpiece is rotated in all directions in front of a camera by a cartesian 6-axis robot for quality inspection and then placed back on the conveyor belt.
Inspection of packaging
The tightness of packaging bags is checked on the assembly line. If the packaging is not tight, it is sorted out.
Quality inspection of circuit boards
The circuit board is taken from the conveyor belt and placed in front of a testing device. After the test has been carried out, it is placed back on the conveyor belt for further processing.
Strength of plug connections
The strength of connectors is tested with an RCP6 servo press. Instead of pressing, the servo press is used for pulling.
As soon as the light barrier is interrupted, the machine stops. This prevents injuries if, for example, the production process is interrupted manually.
The workpiece is pushed into a system for quality inspection. A camera mounted on a slider type inspects the workpiece.
